Ruled By The Heart



Charlene Kelly and Kieran Coppinger in ‘Sanctuary’


A new play in the Liberty Theatre, 1 Eden Quay,  Dublin [for two nights from December 3rd with a matinee on the 4th]  that tackles the issue of intimacy among people with intellectual disabilities.

The production presented by Down Syndrome Ireland , Inclusion Ireland and Galway’s Blue Teapot theatre group is a love affair set against the backdrop of the confusing 1993 Criminal Law (Sexual Offences) Act.

The act currently criminalises sexual intercourse with certain people, including some people with intellectual disability but does not criminalise sexual intercourse among people who are married.

Tickets here
